Down on his luck hunter Johnny (Li Hsiu-Hsien) is persuaded to lead an expedition into the Indian jungle to find a giant ape dubbed the Mighty Peking Man. But the perils of the jungle are plenty, from elefant-stampedes to tiger attacks to dangerous rock-climbing, enough to make everyone else desert Johnny before he finds the Mighty Peking Man. & when Johnny does, he is promptly attacked by the giant beast, only to be saved by blond jungle girl Samantha (Evelyn Kraft), whom is friends with the ape. Johnny later returns the favour by saving her from a poisonous snake bite & romance soon ensues - much to Mighty Peking Man's dislike, who, after watching them make love (in a hilarious shot) goes berserk in the jungle. Samantha can calm him though & soon she & Johnny decide to take Mighty Peking Man to Hong Kong. Soon though, Johnny starts to have doubts when his businesspartner risks all their lives by having the captain of the ship they've all - including Mighty Peking Man - taken for the passage, steer right through a storm in order to arrive in Hong Kong on time, & if it wasn't for the ape, who singlehandedly pushes the boat off some cliffs (another hilarious scene), their ship would have sunk too. but in Hong Kong it only gets worse: The ape is held in a giant cage & abused by his guards, Johnny becomes entangled in a love affair he thought to be over again, & Samantha, who is very enraged over this, gets raped by Johnny's business partner - before the very eyes of Mighty Peking Man who breaks loose bringing havoc to the city, & the city's only hope would be Samantha to calm him, but she very much has lost interest in this kind of civilization & lets the ape have his night on the town before she is persuaded to calm him, only to be betrayed by civilization once more as both she & the beast are blown up in the end.

 

Delightfully trashy rip-off of King Kong, with the special effects deinitely not on par with the '33 film, we just have a man in monstersuit - & not a good one at that - in Mighty Peking Man (the effects might not be so bad compared to the abysmal '76-version though, but I'm in no mood to watch that movie for comparison), but if you like very childish pulp fiction with erotic overtones (Evelyn Kraft's costume is definitely nothing for the prudish to wear), you will love this movie.
